Barbarian build: The Inexhaustible Berserker for Diablo 3 Items Collectors
This build is all about maximizing your enrage abilities, making you a self-buffing death monster. Your key skills are Battle Rage and Wrath of the Berserker. Battle Rage is your everyday use enrage which should be active more or less at all times with only one trigger at the beginning of combat. Wrath of the Berserker, on the other hand, is your hard enrage, which you’ll have to use more sparingly. Since crits extend the duration of your Battle Rage, dual-wield Diablo 3 Legendary items work best, with either a mace / axe (crit chance from Weapons Master) or spear (attack speed from Weapons Master) in the main hand. Frenzy, with its quick blows, leads to more crits and is a natural primary skill. Leap and Furious Charge keep you alive amidst the battle while generating extra fury. Hammer of the Ancients with the Smash rune is a great Elite / Boss killer. At higher levels, you may want to swap out the Ferocity rune on Battle Rage for Into the Fray, to extend the duration of Wrath of the Berserker with Battle Rage.
Preferred stats: Attack Speed, Crit Chance, Strength, Weapon Damage
Barbarian build: The Mighty Thor for Diablo 3 Items Collectors
Become the god of thunder with this mighty Thor build! Bash and Hammer of the Ancients remind you of the Asgardian Thor, sending out lightning bolts and shockwaves that stun and toss around your enemies. Leap is about as close as you’ll get to modeling the son of Odin’s flight ability. Obviously, Weapon Throw with the Throwing Hammer rune is essential. And when the fighting is the thickest, pop Call of the Ancients to summon Thor’s loyal companions, the Warriors Three! Your passives make you even mightier when outnumbered and ensure that no foe can escape from Midgard’s greatest protector.
Preferred stats: Strength, Weapon Damage, Vitality
Barbarian build: The Punter for Diablo 3 Items Collectors
Watch bodies fly in every direction as you smash your way through the herd with your class-specific D3 items! This build maximizes ragdoll physics by giving you every opportunity to proc knockback effects. Your primary skill Bash has a 20% chance to send people packing while generating Fury to unleash your three major tossers: Seismic Slam, Ground Stomp and Earthquake – all runed to boost the potency of their AoE knockbacks. Furious Charge and Threatening Shout ensure you stay alive to keep kicking the undead to the curb. The passives Brawler, Juggernaut and Unforgiving stops your compulsive need to punt people from hurting your damage output.
Preferred stats: Knockback Chance, Strength, Weapon Damage
